Columbia Falls rallied from an eight-point deficit over the final 5:05 of regulation to defeat Libby on Friday night, 22-21.

Libby's T.J. Benson finished with seven catches for 228 yards – or 93 percent of the Logger offense – but even those numbers could not keep the Wildcats from the win column. Benson scored on TD receptions of 54 and 91 yards. Justin Thrailkill scored for LHS to cap a short drive that began inside the 10 after a blocked punt by Kyle Sweedman.
